Global Gam Jam 2015

Over forty-eight hours last weekend, one hundred eighty game makers made over fifty games. The theme this year was the question “What do we do now?” and groups made games about Kickstarter, emojis, broken spaceships, the United Nations, the movie Hear No Evil, See No Evil, and so much more. We had digital games, non-digital games, VR games, and a game for a keyboard covered in peanut butter. At the end of the jam, a group of judges gave out a awards to celebrate the best in design, visuals, audio, and trainwrecks.
